Kevin was a caring soul. He always wanted to lend a helping hand, often putting others before himself. He attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for Creative Writing, and was very artistic. He created many art pieces, and shared many poems with his family and friends, and even learned a little Japanese in his studies. Kevin also loved gaming; creating storylines, characters, and even the game maps, his artistic ability made all of his thoughts come to life.

"Duck" Douglass; step-sister, Joann (Alex) Maurice; aunts & uncles, Albert (Jacquline) Abromitis, Vincent (Rebecca) Abromitis, Thomas (Deborah) Douglass, Cathy (John) Light; many loving cousins, and a best friend that was more like a brother, Tom Ballowe.
